Just wondering if any person knows of a good trusted manufacturer who produces accurate adapters- more specifically for a Pentax Q body.

Looking to reach infinity focus on these lenses, it would be a great treat. His or her kind words would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Holidays and New Year.

Hi Andrew,

There's plenty of them on eBay.

Just search for: C-mount Pentax-Q

Whether they are all guaranteed to reach infinity depends on construction.

Usually manufacturers tend to go a little short on the flange focal distance, so you will always be able to focus at infinity visually but the distance scale markings might be off a little.

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Yes, one I got on e-bay seemed to have turned my lenses into macro-mode - and I find it very difficult trying to focus on the lcd screen.

..I forgot what I was going to say.
